God, enkindle in me a pure and total love for you. Help me to pursue you above all else, that nothing else matters more to me than you. Remind me that I am a stranger, a nomad, a pilgrim on this earth, destined to dwell in the place you have prepared for me in heaven. May I live in such a way that all who see me realize that my Homeland is not here below. Make me poor in spirit, that I might be a worthy follower of your Son, who had nowhere on this earth to lay his head. I turn to you in my financial need, aware that you care for the lilies of the field and the sparrows of the air. Bring me the assistance I need to live the life of dignity you desire for me. Provide for my needs, and help me to rest in trusting you. Amen.
